Representative Text

1 Humbly confessing
Our need, O Lord, of Thee,
Pleading Thy promise,
We come before Thy throne;
Hear, O Saviour, hear us,
Draw in mercy near us,
Consecrate our willing hearts,
Ever Thine alone.

Humbly confessing,
Low before Thee now we bend;
Make our willing hearts, O Saviour,
Ever Thine to be.

2 Humbly confessing
Thy all-sufficient grace,
Taught by Thy goodness
To cast our care on Thee;
While our way pursuing,
Still our strength renewing,
Open Thou our joyful eyes,
Life beyond to see. [Refrain]

3 Humbly confessing
The greatness of Thy pow’r,
O keep us faithful,
And grant our soul’s request;
May Thy truth uphold us,
May Thine arms enfold us,
Till we reach our home at last,
In the vale of rest. [Refrain]
